Sodwana Bay's big game fishing is world renowned. Sodwana Bay in the North of Kwazulu Natal is a great place to base a Game fishing escape. A large number of game fish come to the Bay during the season, and offer a real challenge to the most experienced angler. Most fishing is by live baiting or trolling artificial lures. Species present in the same waters through the summer and months are blue marlin, black marlin, broad bill swordfish, mako shark, dolphin fish (mahi-mahi), yellow fin, Kingfish and king mackerel as well as the occasional short billed spearfish. These species are all available from September through April. During May to August the bigger game fish are caught using live bait. Speed jigging and popper fishing are other effective fishing methods for kingfish. These fish are usually found and fished for near deep rocky shores, offshore reefs and ledges.
